Re: Cruise Ship Parking Lot

They are Bahamian flagged. Anchored in Bahamian waters. Really doubt they are going to Miami for food runs

Re: Cruise Ship Parking Lot

Some are Bahamian flagged, most aren't. The Bahamas are locked down tighter than the US and the Bahamas have far less logistic capacity.

Re: Cruise Ship Parking Lot

I am sure that they only have the minimum skillsets they need to keep the ship afloat and the crew fed.

But let's face it, there are many nationalities involved and they may be stuck and cannot go home. Many may be happy making the money they intended to make, but I am sure some are desperate and would prefer to be home with family.

Re: Cruise Ship Parking Lot

I think you will find that the ones there are Bahamian flagged, and the PM and others aren’t happy with them there, but as they are Bahamian flagged they have to be, I listened to one of his speeches and after it there were questions of course and a couple were about the cruise ships.
I don’t think they are moving, I have no idea how they are resupplied, or if they even are, assumption is with a whole lot of people missing, except for fresh food, they have months of food, and since they aren’t sailing, months of generator fuel.
I assume they are all electric boats and run one propulsion motor as a generator?
